Familiarisation to maximal recumbent eccentric cycling
(IOS Press, 2017)
BACKGROUND: Isokinetic eccentric cycling is increasingly being utilised to examine the effect of chronic eccentric muscle training however little is known about how individuals familiarise to such a unique training modality. ...
Contraction intensity and sex differences in knee-extensor fatigability
Females are less fatigable than males during isometric contractions across various muscles and intensities. However, sex differences in knee-extensor fatigability remain relatively unexplored. Purpose: To determine the sex ...
Compound maximal motor unit response is modulated by contraction intensity, but not contraction type in tibialis anterior
Determining a single compound maximal motor response (MMAX) or an average superimposed MMAX response (MSUP) are commonly used reference values in experiments eliciting raw electromyographic, motor evoked potentials, ...
Corticospinal excitability during shortening and lengthening actions with incremental torque output
The modulation of motor evoked potentials (MEPs), an index of corticospinal excitability, has been shown to increase during isometric contractions with incremental torque output in accordance with the contribution between ...
Differences in force normalising procedures during submaximal anisometric contractions
Eccentric contractions are thought to require a unique neural activation strategy. However, due to greater intrinsic force generating capacity of muscle fibres during eccentric contraction, the understanding of neural ...
